Where did this air? I've only ever caught Hitchens, or Dawkins in interviews, or on shows like Real Time w/ Bill Maher! And I've never seen a debate live. I would LOVE to catch the next debate with any of them live!!! Do they even show them live, or is it a college student/whatever always uploading it to the internet after the event? Or maybe I could find where the next one takes place; it'd be more entertaining than a night at the local comedy club!!!

Christopher Hitchens died Dec 2011.

There are scores of his debates on youtube. Just search "Christopher Hitchens"

I know Hitchens died in 2011, but I assume there's at least one atheist left in the U.S. willing to debate a christian or 2 in front of a large audience. I should like to see a debate live!

I went to the world atheist conference in Melbourne last year. Awesome! Intelligent, well mannered, happy people! We had fun debating some protesters outside...hot-headed Christians and Islamists.

ps...and I got to talk to Sam Harris, Daniel Dennet.

This is one of my favorite Hitchens debates. Hitchen's opening salvo is epic.

The Hitchens versus Dembski debate is another good one . True to form, Hitchens prepared no closing statement and preferred instead to answer another audience question. When Dembski preferred to proceed with prepared closing statements instead, Hitchens weaved together ideas from the debate into an incredibly moving closing statement.:

The poster of the debate has a convenient link to Hitchens closing remarks in the video description--listen to that bit if you must, but the whole thing is worth the time if you haven't seen it yet.

Wonderful! I enjoyed ticking off the typical apologist tactics used by the Catholic representatives. It is now 2:30 am and I am up way past my bedtime but it was worth it. Thanks for posting this. It was awesome.
